Seasons of the Moral Life

Kathy Lilla Cox, Ph.D.

As we age, experience life, encounter various people who comprise the human community, and delve into our interests our conceptions of the moral life might change or need deepening. Familiar and learned frameworks, rules, and standards might not address or answer our current questions. Recent developments in neuroscience and psychology reveal our capacity for change. Come explore how these developments generate fertile ground and pitfalls to be avoided for deepening our understanding of the human person, along with the implications for morality as we age.
